the UIRR protests for the damages to the transport arranged caused from railway intense activities not correctly planned

for six weeks the railway line of the Valley Rhenish

the International Union for Road-Rail Combined Transport (UIRR) has denounced the impact strongly negative on the activity of the operators of the field of the arranged transport that it is determined by important you work on the railway lines, participations not correctly planned - it has emphasized the association - that months are started in the past and the past weeks and that they are causing to excessive obstacles to the normal activity on the railway axis European north-south that connects Germany with Italy and that more important of the continent is the railway director.

the UIRR has evidenced that the situation, previously already critical, ulteriorly has deteriotated some days before when the intense activities of construction of a tunnel near the German city of Rastatt have determined a lowering of the tracks and provoked the interruption of the railway line of the Valley Rhenish. The association has explained that the cancellation of travels of the trains is remarkablly damaging the European operators of arranged transport.

"In the course of this summer - it has observed the president of the UIRR, Ralf-Charley Schultze - is not the first time that planned participations and planned intense activities have not caused meaningful losses to the arranged operators of transport". Schultze has invited the European railway field to improve the planning of the participations on infrastructures and to resolve such situations in fast and effective way.

the UIRR has specified that if initially previewed that the railway line of the Valley Rhenish could have been restored in two weeks, successively it has happened that at least six weeks of intense activities will be necessary and considers that the line probably will be closed until the september end.

the UIRR has emphasized that if an interruption of the rail shipment of passengers can be faced transferring the passengers on buses that cover roads parallels to the section of railroads closed, an analogous solution is not instead available for the cargo trains. In particular, the association has specified that, relatively to the interruption of Rastatt, they could be used two railway lines alternatives that however do not offer sufficient ability in order to allow the passage of the 170-200 cargo trains that normally every day cross Rastatt. Moreover the lines alternatives relatively anticipate problems to the employment of the rotabile material and for the presence of traces not which electrified.
